The vision of the Children’s Ministry at Webster Hills UMC is to inspire children and their families to know, trust, and serve God. This ministry serves children from birth to fifth grades.
Students in sixth through twelfth grades are also invited to take part in Sunday evening youth activities.
From Sunday School to preschool to special events, children are loved and valued here at Webster Hills UMC. Children are involved in all parts of our life together. They learn about God and Jesus in Sunday School, learn about worship in Children’s Choir and are welcome to be alongside their parents in worship or to enroll in nursery care (birth-age 5). For your child’s safety and your peace of mind we screen our teachers and ministry volunteers and provide teacher training throughout the year.
Check-in for Sunday School begins at 8:45am. We’ll make sure your child is headed to the right class and can help escort them if you would like. If you are new, we’ll help you find a classroom. Enter the Education Wing through the double glass doors on West Lockwood/east side of Berry Rd. and our welcome team will be ready to greet you.
Sunday School 9:00-10:00am
We have a devoted team of volunteers who plan and lead each week. They find ways to bring a child’s view of God, the world and themselves into the class time. Each week is built around a key Bible story and provides a “Bottom Line” message for the children to learn and understand. Learning continues into the week through the information we provide parents. These “Parent Cues” help them connect the lessons to life at home.
The nursery opens at 8:30am. If you choose, your preschooler can remain in the nursery from Sunday School through the end of worship.
Preschool children are given a variety of ways to learn about three basics: God made me; God loves me; Jesus wants to be my friend forever. They are guided through hands-on activities, music, art, and more.
Classes are divided by age group. We offer lessons that reinforce these basics: I need to make the wise choice; I can trust God no matter what; I should treat others the way I want to be treated. Each group uses age appropriate activities each week to help them learn God’s story and see how it affects their lives.
